The Asylum Seekers

 

Do people ever learn he thought, sitting there in front

 

Of the box, just looking at it, like a brain washed

 

Lunatic, nopsey dopsey for sure he thought, shaking his

 

head, not in disbelief or dismay, not even upset.

 

This was just another day, like the day before, and

 

Probably tomorrow too he yawned. But something stirred

 

Him, as they got his attention. Their  TV faces all

 

looked the same too.  There was no make up artists on

 

this set, not last second touches as you’d expect when

 

faced with the glare of loud TV lights. Action!. He

 

imagined some film director shouting at them all, run,

 

run he shouts as they flee forwards perceived freedom.

 

Au natural as they say in france, without a hint of make

 

up, and hope. But when did asylum seekers ever matter.ImageFr
